Yankees catcher Chris Stewart has been taken to the hospital after experiencing symptoms similar to the ones that forced him out of Saturday night's game due to dehydration.
Stewart was removed from the starting lineup Sunday night against Boston, and the Yankees say he will undergo further evaluation at New York-Presbyterian Hospital.
Stewart left Saturday night's 11-1 loss to the Red Sox in the fourth inning. The game-time temperature was 86 degrees and New York manager Joe Girardi said Stewart got ''lightheaded'' but checked out OK.
About 20 minutes before the scheduled first pitch Sunday night, the Yankees announced that Stewart would be replaced by Austin Romine behind the plate.

New York Yankees right-hander Chien-Ming Wang was able to
opt out of his minor league contract with the team yesterday. However, he
elected not to do so, as he’s reportedly only interested in severing ties with the Yankees if he can find a starting role elsewhere. There are six teams that
have been eyeing Wang, but the Minnesota Twins are not one of them, according
As much as I hate the Yankees, I have to give them their due. They shut us down last night. Ot more specifically, CC Sabathia shut us down. He was nothing short of brilliant last night. He is a legimate ace and he pitched like one last night. Trust me, it pains me a lot to type these words, but I give respect where it's due, and Sabathia earned my respect (at least for now)....
Alex Rodriquez…I know he is the elephant in the room or the loud obnoxious friend no one wants to admit they brought to the party, but we need to talk about him.

He already had New York sports stars Robinson Cano, Victor Cruz and Geno Smith. Now, Jay-Z's Roc Nation Sports could be on the verge of signing DeSean Jackson.

While I was watching the Yankees take down the Cleveland Indians last night (thanks, in part, to that thrilling grand slam by Mark Teixeira), I filled out my first (and probably last) All Star Ballot. For some reason, I'm not "into" voting this year. In fact, I'm not into the entire All Star Game experience this year. Perhaps it's because the festivities will...
